I wanted to apologize to Barrie of thepinkbee for hurting her feelings. It was never my intent and I’m sorry that she took my posts as a personal attack.
Furthermore, while the angry mobs that I was expecting never arrived I was delisted at re:Becca. Maybe if I behave for a long time a can get relisted.
At the same time I do fully stand behind my assessment of the attitude and make no apologies for that nor for commenting on that attitude. The attitude is radically unhealthy, unnecessary, and has underpinnings stemming from Peter Singer’s philosophy and well as the culture of death we have moved into.
There were some comments about it being passive aggressive (cowardice?) that I posted to my blog instead of as a comment on her post. When I wrote the post I contemplated posting it in both places but decided against it. First, because my intention was/is not to change her opinion – obviously I feel she is wrong – she is welcome to feel/think however she wants. Secondly, that post would have been outside the theme of her blog and her audience making it irrelevant. Since I wasn’t posting for her and it was of no value to her audience I decided to just post to my site. If that is passive-aggressive so be it – though at the same time I never meant it as an aggressive post. This was just as my $.02 on an opinion/feeling/thinking I radically disagree with.
There were a couple of comments about me being a Christian. Oddly, the comments were by non-Christians. As always, but especially with that post, if anyone has any Biblical objections please point out my error so that I can repent – but be specific.
(I would have posted yesterday but by the time I got home from work I passed out from exhaustion caused by going to bed way too late on Sunday.)
